Description Fabio Bonfante 2006-05-23 16:04:04 UTC
i use LDFLAGS="-O4" to optimize the linker... all other ebuilds like it only samba doesn't... commenting this flags all gone. 
In some way the flag is propagated at the that rightly doesn't know this entry.
All other version i tried (since gentoo 2005.0) of samba suffer of this problem, and i don't remember all the times i forgot to re-uncomment the flags :-(

Comment 1 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-23 16:07:10 UTC
Feel free to remove -O4 or whatever other cruft from there...
Comment 2 Fabio Bonfante 2006-05-23 16:50:36 UTC
i think removing the flag is most a workaround... in effect there isn't any "gcc-related" compile error there's only problem when the flag is passed to the python setup app.

This beaviour it's very hateful when you have a long emerge sequence to do containing samba, like an emerge -uDN world, or a simply emerge gnome in a fresh gentoo installation. 
If you don't have time to stay hours seeing compiling only for commenting a line in make.conf before emerging samba you are forced to compile all other stuff without this optimization...

Gentoo is all about choices, isn't it? ;-)

Somebody knows how to patch the makefile avoiding pass LDFLAGS to the python plugin?

PS Can we reopen bug?

Sure, our choice is to not bother with fixing self-inflicted borkage.

No... Besides, you won't get any error if you'll setup your LDFLAGS properly (i.e., -Wl,-O4)
